Get to know your OGR – Ashleigh Merriel


I am the HDR Progression Coordinator in the Office of Graduate Research. My job involves a lot of complex cases and the most rewarding part of my role is being able to assist HDR students in creating the best possible outcomes for them. I always find it so exciting when students graduate, particularly when they have overcome enormous obstacles in their journey.

Outside of work, I enjoy painting, travelling and am an active member in community theatre (both acting and backstage) for a number of companies around Adelaide.

My favourite travel destinations are the UK, Italy, Czech Republic and Canada. This year my fiancé and I are lucky enough to see our families in Tasmania for Christmas.

My favourite cuisine is anything that I don’t have to cook as I’m not very good at it. Haha!
